My Favorite Food

Dear Friends,

I am often asked what my favorite this or that is - color, character, animal – and occasionally someone will ask – What is your favorite food? And while there are many foods I enjoy eating, I have always loved Blackforest honey since I was a child and I think I always will. Here I am enjoying it for breakfast.

  1. Love the pic, Mr. Carle.

    Thanks for the info re: HOI. I ordered my print yesterday and look forward to it's arrival. I'm excited to have another one of your beautiful creations and really happy that my purchase supports something that is important to you.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hello Mr. Carle,
    I just discovered you (where I have been hiding, not to already know about you?) through an interview Traci Bautista gave on the Craftcast podcast. You are on of Traci's main inspirations.
    I watched all your videos of how you worked and loved them. Your creations are colorful and exciting!

  3. Hi,

    From one blogger to another "Keep up the good work!".
